    SubjectRe: [1/1][PATCH] nproc v2: netlink access to /proc information
    Here's another thing we haven't been able to do with /proc: Finding out
    the relative cost of computing the elements we offer to user space.

    I ran a test program against 2.6.9-rc2-bk1 + nproc to get:

    Testing all process fields, best out of 10
    FieldID CPU (s) Wall (s) Label
    0x03000002 0.140000 0.202728 NOP
    0x21000100 0.150000 0.210021 Name
    0x22000105 0.120000 0.204886 PID
    0x22000109 0.130000 0.205319 UID
    0x22000117 0.140000 0.215275 VmSize
    0x22000118 0.130000 0.214240 VmLock
    0x22000119 0.120000 0.214870 VmRSS
    0x22000120 0.160000 1.020574 VmData
    0x22000121 0.140000 1.021185 VmStack
    0x22000122 0.170000 1.021619 VmExe
    0x22000123 0.170000 1.020045 VmLib
    0x23000421 0.140000 0.220748 wchan

    Ignore the absolute values (I requested each field individually for all
    processes on my workstation, 1000 times). The cost of walking all vmas
    for VmData & Co. is very visible.
